Service Learning

Renbrook’s commitment to service is integrated into campus activities in a variety of ways. The
service learning program at Renbrook expands on community service by integrating classroom instruction with an emphasis on reflective thinking, civic responsibility, and a strong sense of stewardship.

In the preschool through junior kindergarten years, students are introduced to service learning during the Week of the Young Child when they prepare hundreds of sandwiches for local soup kitchens. They also participate in school-wide service projects during Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the winter holiday season.

In Lower School, classes sponsor annual events including the Fifth Grade Read-In for the March of Dimes and the Third Grade Bake Sale for UNICEF. Other classes tutor preschoolers from their buddy classes at Headstart, or gather clothing, books and gifts for the families or programs in need.

All ninth graders participate in Service Learning Days, periodic community-outreach efforts at the Connecticut Children's Medical Center, St. Mary's Home, and The Right Place day care center. Members of the Ninth Grade Service Committee also lend their leadership and support to younger students and projects in the Lower School divisions.

Across all divisions and throughout the year, students participate in the many community drives that benefit area agencies, shelters, hospitals, and soup kitchens, and assist at area day care centers, retirement and convalescent homes. Students have raised money and volunteered time for the Salvation Army, Loaves & Fishes, Red Cross, Connecticut Humane Society, Heifer International, and other nonprofit agencies.
